One of the most serious risks patients in healthcare facilities face is acquired infection, and this directly results in struggles with the financial stability of the institution. Harmful microorganisms populate as much as 70% of the surfaces of rooms housing sick patients according to studies conducted by the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC).
These bacteria can survive on dry surfaces far longer than many realize. The same study revealed that Staphylococcus aureus can thrive as long as three weeks with other germs capable of survival for up to four months.
